Domestic Violence Movie
For many people, both women and men, this dark room is a reality. Domestic violence is a major problem in our society and the world at large. I experienced it in my family, which is why I dedicated my novel to the late Johnnie B. Sweet, my grandmother.
My mother remembers many stories of the abuse that my grandmother suffered, but I remember my grandmother being one of the greatest people I knew. Despite her silent suffering, she still set a positive example for me and my siblings and cousins.
My name is Gerald C. Anderson, Sr. and I am the author of Standing Firm (One Family’s Fight Against Domestic Violence). I am asking for donations to help me turn my novel into a movie and raise awareness for domestic violence.
Standing Firm is dedicated to stopping the abuse, the suffering, the pain and the death. This fictional tale provides a means to make others aware of the suffering a victim can endure. Twenty percent of the royalties from Standing Firm will be donated to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the None Lost Movement.
Synopsis of Standing Firm: Lorraine "Raine" Davis, the youngest of the Davis family wants to be a star! She’s willing and ready to do whatever it takes to get a record deal; even if that means disappointing her father and trading in the only man she’s ever loved to join forces with Damien Black and his demonic organization. On the biggest day of her life, her allegiance is tested and she’s faced with the difficult decision to continue singing in the church choir and living for the Lord or forever give up the only existence she’s ever known.
Damien promised Raine a lavish lifestyle beyond her wildest dreams. She leaves the church, denounces her family, and signs her name in blood to reap all of the benefits that were promised to her. After converting, Raine’s world erupts. She is ill prepared for the infidelity and physical abuse she must endure at the hands of her new beau, Damien. Raine is reminded daily of her reckless decision by having to hide the bruises on her body and live with the emotional scars.
In a desperate attempt to undo what has never been undone, Raine's fight to win her soul back is not an easy one. Only God and God alone can help her now.
